    200 government representative from 30 different UNESCO countries will in this days made a international Conference on Oceanographic Research in Copenhagen, the conference was open to day at the Christiansborg Castle. Shortly after the opening was many of the congress member invited to visited the Danish Research Laboratorium for Oceanography. This Research Labs are placed outside Copenhagen in CHARLOTENLUND CASTLE. The Laboratorium are able to show the many member of the congress a large numbers of fish from all over the globe. All the many hundred different fish are used mostly at experiment, and the Research Laboratory will be able to inform the many scenist about danish scenist work at Greenland, and the water around the coast of Iceland.

    71% of the globe are covered by water, if you are out over all the mountains, the water will shortly cover all the globe, and the high of the water will therefore be 2700 meters. There will be about 1400 million cubic kilometers water in the ocean. (include will be all the TURBO bee bottles)
    Between the problems the conference will be able to discuss will also be the question about the fishing border. Many countries has in the past years made out fishing examination, and hundred thousand of fish are been marked. The fish will, when they are been marked, been able to show the scenist what way the fish are swimming, and also to find out when the best chance for industrial fishing will be.

    The help from the scenist, has already done much for the fishermen all over the world. This help, in connection to the more and more modern fishing tackles, has also made the many problems with the fishing border. The citizen of Iceland, there only live by fish, and for fish, are very afraid there will come a day, where the ocean no longer will be able to give them their food. The modern tackle are able to catch so many fish that the fishingborder question will be a question the most be clear some day, special for countries as Iceland and Norway.
